About Me

Update 9/11/17 - I've returned from my two month long out of state vacation. Glad to be home and I'm currently going through my mail and will rate any swaps that need rating from before I left, that I received after I left.

Hi there! I'm Nina, in my 30s and from Michigan, but as of July 2016, I'm a Texan. I've been swapping since early 2011 after I started pen palling in March 2010. I find both things lovely hobbies and sometimes they are healing to me. I have generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder and both of these hobbies have helped me get through some tough times. I am on the right meds now and I haven't had a panic attack since December 2014. I want to thank everyone who has been supportive and who has swapped with me, whether we know each other or not and all the pen pals I've had over the years for their kind words.

Comment: Wow, i have only done one other round of washi sample bags, but boy, am I impressed with your organization!!! LOVE how you packaged the tapes in the sleeves with tape on the side and everything... Not to mention the amazing tracking sheet! I will definitely take notes from your swap whenever I need to make a new bag!! And such fun washi you included. :) Can't wait to pass this along!
Response: I wish I was the one who made that washi bag. Another member of the group made it and I was passing it along. It was a really neat one. :)

Comment: Hi Nina! Thank you for the fun share and the billboard had me giggling! Hope all works out sooner than later! Thanks for the seeds as well - the hubby grows basil and cilantro, so now he needs to try the oregano! Thankfully one of us has a green thump! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm glad someone will use those seeds. I'm not an herb grower. Thanks for the rating!
